  • Rabbits



    This review will be a long one with a couple of possible theories. But first I have to say, this is the most puzzling film I think I have ever seen, and it is amazing.

    ”In a nameless city deluged by continuous rain, three rabbits live with a fearful mystery.”

    The atmosphere in Rabbits was simply horrifying. Lynch took a lot of familiar things and stitched them up together to something that makes no sense. We have the studio laughs from sit-coms,…

    Where Blood Lies


    This was so well made and it had some of the best cinematography I have ever seen in a short film. As a proof of concept this works perfectly and I would like to see more. Usually this type of genre is not my cup of tea but this was so well made that I would definitely watch the limited series the filmmaker made this for. Great job!

    This was amazing. It was shot and edited so well, it really looked like security camera footage and so realistic that it felt so creepy to watch it, as we would be actually spying on them. The writing was perfect, and the ending was so haunting and upsetting. I loved this short so much and I can’t wait to see what else the director has done/will do.

    Tribe: The Untold Story of the Making of Vice Cops


    This is a real hidden gem. If you want to lose yourself in a world of humor, cheesy action and homages to 80’s action flicks this is the way to go. Every second of it was pure gold, I really hope this would evolve into a feature. I definitely recommend this to everyone who wants a laugh.

    A great short film made in a way that is generally really difficult to do. It is extremely exciting and the suspense is thrilling, and the actors are all amazing. This type of ”Found Footage” stuff is usually a bit cringy and hard to make, but Thomas excelled at it and made one of the best horror shorts I have ever seen. GREAT JOB
